A warm and friendly welcome from Badgers Cricket Club – a wandering cricket side who play only friendly cricket matches, mostly in the villages of Surrey – and who also enjoy a yearly three day tour (for many years to the Cotswolds, briefly to Dorset, for several years to Cheshire and more recently we have wandered in our touring too, taking in visits to Cheltenham, Taunton and Canterbury). For more information about the club and this web site, take a peek at the about page.

The site continues to grow in scope, despite having made its first appearance twenty-three and a half years ago in March 2000, and in addition to up-to-the-minute results, summary scorecards, detailed scorecards, match reports and fixtures, you will also find more statistical information than you could shake a stick at (going all the way back to the club’s inaugural season in 1959), the Badgers ‘Honours Board’, a list of the current club officers and links to our social media ‘presence’.

What’s New

30 Oct 2023

Hopefully all interested parties will already know that the annual dinner and awards presentation will be taking place this coming Saturday, 4th November, will have filled out their menu choices and have paid for their meal. If you feel you have been missed out and would like to be there please contact the skipper immediately.

Now that the 2023 season is set in stone I am able to bring you the season report which will be used to inform the destination of some of the cups on the night (although no doubt you have all already worked out who is getting what from the Play-Cricket statistics pages, which is why we don’t hold this back until after the dinner these days).

All of the other pages have been updated with the 2023 figures, including all decade by decade averages pages, the personal pages (for which Nat has qualified for the first time) and the individual records page. In addition you can now find historical results for 2023 along with the leading performances and partnerships for the season just gone.

One item of note, and the reason this update is so close to the dinner, is that I have been trying to expand the content of the averages tables for the the first time since they were originally designed to fit on a sheet of A4 paper output on a dot matrix printer back in 1988!? Unfortunately I have only found the time to expand the single season batting and bowling averages and only regenerated those for the current decade but please let me know what you think and I will continue to work on revamping the remaining pages and adding similar columns to the multi-season reports (where the data to do so is available).

As ever the end of season update brings a lot of other (mostly automatic) changes under the covers, so if you see anything that looks wrong please let me know and I will endeavour to sort it out.

The season finished with our first ever visit to Forest Green, a ground that the skipper has wanted to play on for many years, having held his stag do in the Parrot pub, which overlooks the ground, a quarter of a century ago!? The usual summarised details of the game can be found on the results page along with a statistical notes only match report, the detailed scorecard, and the traditional Badgers’ focused scorecard.

Now that the final game is in the record books I will start on the end of season processing, most of which is automated these days, so expect to see the usual barrage of new entries for the 2023 season report before too long.

30 Sep 2023

A rare ‘home’ fixture for the Badgers last Sunday, courtesy of Daniel’s connections with Cranleigh who hosted the game right at the end of their season to enable us to get a game at all. The usual summarised details of the game can be found on the results page along with a statistical notes only match report, the detailed scorecard, and the traditional Badgers’ focused scorecard.

The older What’s New entries are now held on separate pages, to keep this main page cleaner and smaller, and you can also navigate to them using the drop down menus at the top of the page (under Badgers’ Burrow).

This site is very much a work in progress and if you have any comments, suggestions or would simply like more information then please feel free to send an email to the webmaster using this link:
